All of our House Signs and Letterbox Plates are made from Marine Grade 316 Stainless Steel so they won’t rust however regular cleaning is essential to keep the plate looking its best, especially if you’re living near the coast. Our faceplates come standard with a Brushed Finish or can be polished for a Mirror Finish.
MAINTENANCE AND CARE INSTRUCTIONS
We are very proud of the quality of our stainless steel products and offer a 12 month structural warranty.
In coastal areas rust may appear, even on Marine Grade 316 stainless steel. This is called Tea Staining. It is not covered by warranty. To avoid this happening, clean your plate regularly. Begin with once a week for 1st month, then every fortnight for 6 months, followed by once every month thereafter or whenever dirty.
Correct cleaning technique to use is:
BRUSHED FINISH: Use a good stainless steel cleaner (such as 3M or Glitz), then spray with Inox to help protect for longer. If tea staining does appear, it can usually be removed by very lightly rubbing with a non-scratch green scourer, taking care to rub in the same direction as the grain.
MIRROR FINISH: Use Windex and Inox. Never use scourer to remove stains.
